Most countries in the world were shaped and molded by what they had
experienced in the past. Disappointingly, only few recognizes the people
that played roles in shaping their nation.

In relation to this, I think that this particular quote from Jose Rizal's
Noli Me Tangere applies to what I was saying:

"I die without seeing the dawn brighten over my native land. You who have
it to see, welcome it--and forget not those who have fallen during the

Similar to the experiences of the Philippines, the United States have also
experienced wars and revolutions. Eventually, these helped the nation reach
its current status. But apparently, most people forgot to remember the
people that brought them to what they are in the present.

With high regard for the American soldiers who fought for freedom, Freneau
expressed such feeling through a powerful idyll. As I was reading through
the poem, i sensed a feeling of triumph amidst the "death" of the soldiers.
Despite their downfall, America was liberated. And it was through their
bravery and sense of patriotism that this happened.

I especially liked the lines--
"None distant viewed the fatal plain,
None grieved, in such a cause to die--".
It depicted valor with strong will that even pursued death. I can just
imagine the soldiers running towards the battle field with gnashing teeth
and weapon-clenched fists, ready to fight... ready to die... ready for

I would like to honor the Americans for such bravery and will. But I must
not neglect my countrymen who fought for the same cause, perhaps with the
same will.
